New Tiguan Features Powerful 2.0L Engine

Utilizing new technology that delivers better performance and efficiency, the four-cylinder EA888 engine that powers the new 2018 Tiguan is truly a modern marvel. As VW continues to decrease the size of their engines without sacrificing power, drivers can expect greater fuel mileage and longer engine life. VW engineers concentrated on creating a new combustion cycle that works best in the range of driving most often used by consumers. By closing the intake valves much earlier than normal, the new engine creates a longer combustion cycle and a more efficient fuel/air mix. The result is a 200-horsepower engine that has plenty of torque and still delivers 24 mpg on the highway.

Choose From Four Models

When the 2018 VW Tiguan arrives at Chapman Volkswagen, you’ll have four different models from which to choose. The Tiguan S front-wheel drive model starts at just a tick more than $25,000, and includes alloy wheels, LED running lights, halogen headlamps and LED taillights. You’ll also get a rearview camera, heated side mirrors and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen infotainment center. Step up to the SE and you get a larger touchscreen with voice control and three additional USB ports, keyless access, push-button start, dual zone climate control, leatherette seating surfaces and a suite of driver assistance features. The SEL adds even more goodies to the package, with 18-inch alloy wheels, navigation, remote start, power lift gate and panoramic sunroof. The SEL Premium is the top-of-the line, adding features such as 19-inch wheels, LED headlights with adaptive lighting (it goes around corners), rain sensing windshield wipers, leather seats and a heated steering wheel. All models come with your choice of front-wheel or 4Motion all-wheel drive.

Industry’s Best Warranty

The VW Tiguan offers a six-year/72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, the best in the automotive industry. While other companies leave you on your own for repairs after 36 months, the VW Tiguan major and minor components are covered for another three full years. With the cost of repairs skyrocketing due to the complex technology of today’s automobiles, that can mean thousands of dollars saved over the life of the vehicle.

Custom Packages Available

When you look over the new Tiguan inventory at Chapman Volkswagen, make sure and ask about all the different custom packages available. Third-row seating is standard on all the front-wheel drive models, but is an option on the 4Motion all-wheel drive units. You can add Driver Assistance features such as forward collision warning and pedestrian monitoring to the S trim package for just $850. A panoramic sunroof is an available option on the SE trim for $1,200. If you desire a more sporty look and parking assistance, make sure and inquire about the R-Line package, which is an option on the SEL and SEL Premium models.

KBB Puts Jetta on Coolest Cars List

Sometimes to feel cool is to be cool, and you’re bound to be one of the coolest cats on the block when you come home in your new 2017 Volkswagen Jetta. The Jetta made the Kelley Blue Book list of “10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000,” proving that you don’t have to spend a lot of dough to make a statement. Scoring high in both the fun and looks department, the VW Jetta is ready for a test drive today at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale. Hurry in to take advantage of Memorial Day specials that let you lease a Jetta for as little as $119 a month.

Jetta is VW’s ‘Heart and Soul’

“Volkswagen is honored to receive this award from Kelley Blue Book,” said VW Senior VP Hendrik Muth. “The Jetta represents the heart and soul of Volkswagen, with its sporty driving dynamics and high-quality workmanship.” Jetta remains the best-selling Volkswagen in America, with an affordable price and tons of standard equipment in a simplified lineup. With technology such as a premium color multi-function trip computer, a slew of driver assistance safety features and and infotainment system that features VW Car-Net to both guide and inform you and your passengers, the 2017 VW Jetta sets a high bar for German engineering.

Pick Your Performance

The VW Jetta offers three different engines that deliver a variety of horsepower and gas mileage, but all three have a heaping helping of “fun” that put the Jetta on the coolest cars list. Chose the standard 1.4L turbo and you get 150 horsepower, 184 pound-feet of torque and a hybrid-like 40 mpg on the highway. Move up just a bit to the 1.8L turbo and the highway mileage drops a smidge to 35, but the horsepower increases to 170. The 2.0L turbocharged engine is the largest option, producing 210 horsepower and a remarkable 33 mpg on the highway.

Safety at the Heart of the New Jetta

With the best possible five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Top Safety Pick honors from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the VW Jetta is one of the safest choices to transport all your precious cargo. A German-engineered safety cage features front and rear crumple zones to direct the energy away from the passengers in the event of a crash. A liberal use of high-strength steel helps enhance the vehicle’s sturdiness, which also improves handling. The VW Jetta comes in five different trim levels, starting with the S at just $17,895. Check out the entire inventory and take a test drive today at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Manual Transmission VWs Have Many Benefits

If you’re of a certain age, you remember that it was a big deal when your father (or mother) taught you how to drive a stick. The ability to deftly move between three different pedals and smoothly transition from one gear to another was a real rite of passage into adulthood. According to government data, the day of the stick shift is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Just 3.1 percent of all new vehicles delivered in the U.S. had a true manual gear shifter last year. Volkswagen is attempting to reverse that trend and bring the excitement back to driving with vehicles such as the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack.

Now in Stock at Chapman

Now in stock at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale, the VW Golf Alltrack comes with all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission. Aside from the manual transmission’s ability to repel car theft, there are other reasons to drive a stick according to Megan Garbis, VW Golf product manager for the U.S. The manual shifter “gives you a strong connection with the road and the vehicle,” Garbis noted. “A lot of our owners care about driving, and coming out of a Jetta or other Golf, we sant to give them as much as possible without compromise.”

You Can Get an Automatic

Of course, for those who are so inclined to let the car do the brunt of the work, the Alltrack comes with the option of a six-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode. Whether you choose an automatic or manual, strongly consider the $845 Driver Assistance package that includes forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking with front assist, and park distance control. The Golf Alltrack comes in three different trim levels starting at a suggested retail price of just $25,850. All include the patented VW 4MOTION all-wheel drive system that transfers torque from the front to rear axle as needed. Features like a panoramic sunroof, keyless access, navigation and leatherette seating surfaces are available as you move up the ladder in price.

4MOTION Won’t Leave You High and Dry

Along with increased ground clearance, the VW Golf Alltrack comes with the innovative 4MOTION all-wheel drive system that automatically adapts to changing road – or trail – conditions. You won’t be shy about taking this juggernaut off-road, as the all-wheel drive system works in conjunction with an electronic differential lock to make sure you can conquer the beaten path or power through a bout with inclement weather. The 1.8L TSI turbocharged engine provides plenty of power, along with earning a highway rating of 32 mpg from the EPA. For a fun, stylish off-road vehicle that doubles as the perfect commuter, check out the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack today at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Traffic flow optimization, or the ability to move bunches of people through crowded urban areas in a fast and efficient manner, is one of the main challenges to personal mobility in the upcoming years. Anyone who has sat in a Los Angeles or Washington, D.C. rush hour can attest to the problem, which is one of the reasons Volkswagen is teaming up with D-Wave, a quantum computing company, to develop ways the smart cars of the future can improve traffic flow.

No city has a larger traffic problem than Beijing, China, which is the first research project VW and D-Wave are collaborating on. Scientists and auto engineers are working on an algorithm that will improve the travel time of taxis in the city. By focusing on how a specific resource, such as money, energy or time, can be best used, the quantum computers are the best means to develop the maximum optimization. “We are doing digital pioneering work. Quantum computing technology can bring tremendous progress to Volkswagen with respect to all the key IT topics of the future,” according to VW CIO Dr. Martin Hoffman. “This shows that there is no other company where IT is now as exciting as it is at Volkswagen.” The current inventory of VWs at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale has plenty of examples of groundbreaking technology, from the driver assistance features that help avoid collisions to VW’s innovative UConnect infotainment system.

VW expects the future of autonomous driving to hinge on the success of working with quantum computers. The technology derived from today’s experiments will also go a long way toward building factories of the future, with robotics, smart machine learning and intelligent mobility solutions. Expect the VWs of tomorrow to communicate with other cars on the road, decreasing the chances for collisions while increasing traffic flow.

“The goal of our cooperation with Volkswagen is to apply our quantum computing technology to Volkswagen’s real-world computing challenges and make a positive impact on their business,” said D-Wave president Robert Ewald. “This project is a great example of how computing in the future will be done, with talented people looking at new ways to solve old problems, and combining traditional computers to deliver an improved solution.”

Using App Connect with your smartphone is a prime example of how modern technology improves transportation. As debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year, the use of a new Volkswagen specific user ID creates an entirely new ownership experience. Take some time to inspect the inventory and talk about technology when you visit with the pros at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

New VW Tiguan Makes Great First Impression

From Inside/Out, Tiguan Offers Fresh Take

When the 2018 VW Tiguan arrives on the showroom floor at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale later this year, it will offer customers a completely fresh take on the SUV experience. From an athletic new style with LED lighting, a bold front grille and dual exhaust tips to the improved interior space, the Tiguan is a larger midsize SUV than consumers are used to seeing. All front-wheel drive Tiguans will come with a standard third-row seat, while the 4Motion all-wheel drive models will have the third row as an option.

More Room to Haul

Whether you’re hauling people or cargo, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is designed to meet your needs. With almost 11 more inches of wheelbase, the Tiguan has 57 percent more interior room than the current model. A 40/20/40 second row seat that slides forward and back by seven inches not only provides easy access to the third row, but offers a quick way to adjust for hauling home those large purchases. A new chassis system means the Tiguan also sits lower, meaning you won’t have to lift those heavy items as high to get them in the spacious rear hatch. Opening the hatch is also as simple as a kick, which tells the sensors your hands are full and to power up the lift gate.

New Tiguan Loaded With Power and Safety

When you test drive the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale this fall, you should notice the power available for merging onto the freeway or climbing mountain passes. That’s because VW has revamped the 2.0L turbocharged engine to deliver 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. The new 8-speed automatic transmission delivers plenty of low-end power before shifting smoothly through the gears for great fuel economy. A suite of driver assistance options will help you and your precious cargo get safely to your destination. Forward collision warning with autonomous braking not only senses an impending front-end crash, but also takes steps to avoid it should you fail to act. Pedestrian and blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alert and lane departure warning systems are other ways VW helps you avoid a wreck.

Custom Interior Built for Comfort

The new interior of the 2018 VW Tiguan is built for comfort and control. All switches are within easy ergonomic reach of the driver. An optional Volkswagen Digital Cockpit lets you configure the information you want to see displayed. Available leatherette seating, a panoramic sunroof and heated steering wheel all add to the desirability of this new addition to the SUV marketplace.
